1961 Glenlivet Single Malt Whisky by G&M (bottled in 2012)
Medium copper colour with quite intense aromas of ginger, vanilla, honey, orange and touch of prune and smoke. Water brings out some floral notes. Dry with medium acidity, well integrated alcohol at medium level, quite full bodied with touch of wood tannin. On palate it gives over medium intensity flavours of lemon, ginger, honey and touch of vanilla and smoke. Fairly long length with honey and ginger finish. (93) Wood saves the drink.
